Reviewer: JSBejma - - October 1, 2012
Subject: More Like 1970
A moderately informative film about medical school that actually dates to about 1970 (the muttonchops era). This was right at the beginning of the huge wave of applicants that would swell the ratio of applicants to acceptances to nearly 5 to 1 in just a few years. That one interviewee in the process of an interview looks as stiff as a board. They never mention scribe notes which by this time was a lifesaver.

If you're squeamish don't view this because there is an open chest with a beating heart right there for all to see.

Loyola Stritch looks like a fairly typical small or medium size med school at that time.
